Youtube version of a letter written at the height of whaling in the 19th century. It was posted anonymously to the Honolulu Friend in 1850.

This is more for myself for research purposes, but I'm sharing in case anyone else finds it as compelling as I do.

Aarrgh! That looked really interesting! But my computer was making such a meal of playing it that I gave up.

It always amazes me how issues that seem to us to be really modern and the domains of the woolly liberal have their roots in history. Things like vegetarianism, cruelty to animals, and now whaling.

Though if there hadn't been decent folk complaining about things they found barbaric, we'd still be in a world with an overt slave trade. I like to think progress is being made, however slowly.

I agree completely. Though, sometimes I think we take three steps forward and two steps back
